Come to Cadence Creek for the wedding of the season…

Event Planner Taylor Shepard makes a point of not organizing Christmas weddings, but she can’t turn down her brother’s request for her first-class services. She leaves her home of Vancouver behind and journeys to Cadence Creek to plan the big event and finds herself falling for the small town’s holiday charm. It doesn’t help that she keeps running into reticent rancher and reluctant groomsman Rhys Bullock—not her type at all. So why can’t she stop thinking about him?

Rhys has seen Taylor’s type before. The bossy city girl will plan the wedding, take in the scenery, and high-tail it back to the west coast as soon as the holiday is over. But as the Christmas spirit begins to take over the town, he glimpses a side of her he never expected. The connection between them is surprising and strong, an unexpected gift Rhys never knew he needed. But how can their romance last beyond the season, when their lives are so far apart?

I don’t know about you, but I actually love reading holiday stories when it’s NOT the season – so go ahead and grab this one now for some feel good romance!

Promise at Refuge Point is out today!

Is there any better way to spend Valentine’s Day than with a fantastic romance novel? It sure seemed like the perfect time to release one, and today PROMISE AT REFUGE POINT – the final book in my Jewell Cove series – hits the shelves! It’s available in ebook and paperback, and also for free in the Kindle Unlimited plan from Amazon.

I have LOVED writing this series, starting with THE HOUSE ON BLACKBERRY HILL. When I started it, I did all the initial worldbuilding for the town of Jewell Cove along Maine’s midcoast. I wanted the landscape to be similar to Nova Scotia’s south shore (which is one of my fave spots!) and I modeled it on two towns that I kind of blended together – Mahone Bay and Lunenburg. At the center of that first book was also a gorgeous (yet neglected) mansion that I modeled on two museums here in Nova Scotia: Prescott House in Starr’s Point, and Uniacke House in Mount Uniacke. Throughout the books, the images of the house, the waterfront, the sparkling bay and the quaint shops along the Main Street… they gave me so much joy and comfort. I love that cozy small-town feel!

Of course that often comes with a side of “everyone knows everyone else’s business” so….

You can BUY (yay!) it right now at Amazon and read it for free in Kindle Unlimited, or order the paperback from your favorite vendor in a few days’ time, once vendors have populated their titles!

Last chance to preorder Promise at Refuge Point

While a relationship wasn’t in either of their plans, Jax and Summer find themselves growing closer. Little by little, Summer’s emotional walls begin to crumble, That is until Jax learns the secret of Summer’s heritage.

Three siblings. One ranch. And they all must agree to abide by the terms of their grandfather’s will or Crooked Valley’s future is at risk…

Former soldier Duke Duggan isn’t looking forward to returning to Crooked Valley Ranch…or being forced into taking control of the operation now that his grandfather’s passed on. He’s a soldier, not a cowboy, and he’s feeling mighty out of place until he sees ranch foreman Carrie Coulter, a face from the past.

Carrie’s both relieved and annoyed to see Duke, but when he threatens to sell the ranch, she soon realizes that her livelihood is at stake. Still, nothing will be decided until after Christmas, which means there’s ample time for them to find a solution and explore their sizzling chemistry. Until a fierce winter storm threatens everything…

 

New Release Alert: Resisting the Royal Bodyguard

Happy August! I don’t know where the summer is going, but it’s sure slipping by fast. We spent the last weekend of July visiting family – which means lots of food, laughs, and one amazing sunset by the lake.

I’m working away on new historical fiction, but I’m still releasing a few romances in the meantime. On August 1, my novella RESISTING THE ROYAL BODYGUARD went live at Amazon for just 99 cents. It’s a novella in my Princes of Marazur series – a happy ending for Marco, who is now head of palace security. It’s a royalty-adjacent romance with a non-royal at the center. But readers (and this author!) have always had a soft spot for the bodyguard who was driving the car the night the crown princess was killed many years ago (and more on that storyline and the Navarro princes in the other two stories in the series!). Marco has so much survivor’s guilt, and he has a knack of seeing beneath the surface to the pain in others. That’s why when Hayley Walters returns to Marazur to make amends with her sister, Princess Rose, he believes that she genuinely is looking to repair their relationship and start again.

Until…

There’s always an until, isn’t there? And for the royal family, that means another scandal with Hayley at the center. And Marco must choose between his duty and his heart.

I hope you’ll enjoy this one – it’s a sweet little summer read, perfect for the beach or relaxing in the shade with something cool to drink. Or perhaps inside on a rainy day, curled up with a book to pass the time. You can grab it only on amazon at https://amzn.to/3OGAorz.

Enjoy. 🙂
